The USA usually is a place where players came at the end of their career, but this player was the new Lionel Messi and he took a huge shot coming to play at Montreal Impact. Unfortunately, he did not perform as he was expected to, he had some good matches, but despite that, he will eventually leave.

We are talking about Bojan Krkic, the former FC Barcelona player. Apparently, there are some clubs in France that want to take him to the Ligue 1, but not Paris Saint Germain or Olympique Lyon. There are some less important clubs interested in the player as he was not at his best level at the MLS.

At 2011 Bojan was valued at $20 million dollars, and now Montreal Impact would be lucky if they get $1 million. In 19 matches this season he scored four goals and gave two assists. His last match was against New England for a spot in the playoffs and his performance was really bad.

The 30-year-old midfielder will be a free agent at the end of December and Thierry Henry’s team is not planning on a new contract for him. Would he leave the MLS? Going to Europe again is a huge challenge that comes with a lot of pressure. The only truth, is that he will not continue in Montreal.
